on r t so in general radko nottage arrives in the netherlands to be tried in the international criminal tribunal for genocide after his appeal against extradition was rejected. many serbs believe markets won't get a fair trial in the hague because of all against their country all that entails from belgrade just a few moments. also the main suspect in the murder of russian journalist anna politkovskaya is being interrogated a moscow after his arrest in chechnya. the european court of human rights projects
3:01 pm
accusations of russia's prosecution of jailed it's all tied to. skip it was driven by politics. this is r t well it's eleven pm tuesday night my name is kevin owen and first a plane carrying former bosnian serb general record not each has landed in the netherlands he's on his way to the hague to face the international war crimes tribunal but it's lost on appeal against his extradition from serbia and will not be put on trial for allegedly ordering the massacre of muslims in ninety ninety five as cross-eyed workers put a country desirably she's in belgrade with the latest so true then rocco nottage now just literally a step away from the hague is me. indeed he lost an appeal today and of course serbian officials did everything they could to extradite him and as quickly as possible the court received their appeal which was posted by and large this is
3:02 pm
a lawyers just this morning they took just a few hours to determine that the appeal would not be granted and then a few hours after that a police convoy left the courthouse where a lot of has been held ever since he was arrested last week and the justice minister immediately after that confirmed that he was already in the hague the operation itself was incredibly quick i mean we were outside the courthouse and we saw the police convoy pull out i only know that they crossed off all of the highways and the airport itself and when the cars drove out onto the tarmac the plane's engines were already running so with bushels he really did want to get him to the hague as quickly as possible but of course his trial will be anything but quick first of all he and his legal team will have to go through and familiarize themselves with millions of pages worth of documents evidence and everything i mean
3:03 pm
for people previously extradited from serbia like slobodan milosevic and i didn't it took an entire year just to familiarize themselves with the case evidence and of course many already argue that the hague doesn't even have all of the evidence so it could be a lot of time before the trial actually begins at the time that according to the article a lot of just mother and family sorry i'm a lawyer the man does not have his deteriorating health condition of course he suffered three strokes and. condition according to his family basically means that he might not live to see the beginning of his trial just looking to show the. latest pictures coming through we were pretty good at the latest pictures coming through from the wedding to. go that's what you're saying there. just macross. go but what you say many in serbia don't actually believe the hague will be assuming that his health goes lowest. of course and that
3:04 pm
really doesn't have as much to do with the figure of at home lot of self because there are people here who who believe he's a national hero there are others who do believe that he is guilty of some of the crimes he's accused of but for everyone here it's the extradition of a serbian that is incredibly offensive and extradition of course to the i.c.t. why the international criminal tribunal for former yugoslavia that hasn't seen anybody but serbs stand trial within its within its building basically everyone here was also involved in the balkans war of the one nine hundred ninety s. anybody other than serbs or either acquitted of all charges or of weighted justice all together so for the people here it's the fact that the hague seems to be a political tool and not a legal one is what offends them the most and of course many already protesting
3:05 pm
against the extradition of our own law that's in belgrade in the capital where we are there was a ten thousand strong rally over the weekend turning violent of course when you started throwing stones and bottles and firecrackers at riot police who had back with but tongs and rubber bullets dispersing the crowds there was also meeting today our first meeting actually that took place in support of the outcome of that outside serbia in the bosnian herzegovina talent of banja luka thousands of people also gathered to protest the extradition. although all those protests have led to nothing law that is already in the hague and he will remain there for as long as the trial continues ok well we've got a report that you fall going to listen. bringing justice to thousands of victims that's one self-proclaimed success of the international
3:06 pm
criminal tribunal for the former yugoslavia and it's ready to deliver some more serbia prepares to extradite former bosnian serb army chief. he's accused of crimes against humanity and origin in one nine hundred ninety five massacre in the village of slipping. despite living on the run for sixteen years and having suffered two strokes the sixty nine year old general has been deemed fit enough to stand trial and that one person we have spoken to police he will get a fair trial there surely a lot of evidence to back up the serbs distrust of the i c t y so what do the people here based their judgment on a lot of people here in serbia are skeptical about the some of the practices of the high hague tribunal and some of its record for instance because slobodan milosevic died in prison without a conviction then for us war criminals that are generally acknowledged as
3:07 pm
a war criminals here in serbia but i deny from course of all. commanders have actually been acquitted author. witnesses or after the tribunals simply concluded that there was not enough evidence how did they isn't by only means the only example taker and kosovo prime minister. has been accused by the council of europe of being in charge of an organ trafficking group and still remains in his post bosnian general nothing was known among serb residents of the district stripping it's a vampire for allegedly cutting the throats of thousands of civilians he walked free cleared of all charges and former military leaders. second how you live each accused of mass murders during the balkan war of the one nine hundred ninety s. enter politics having also avoided justice. this many suggest is
3:08 pm
a very clear indicator that the hague tribunal is being used as a political tool not a legal one probably because of their off the corner in preserving the truth or is it justice or something else for events that happened in the balkans with the question of law geopolitics or someone else's interests i believe that all the former yugoslavia of bit too much and probably because we let ourselves be involved in a war in the twentieth century of her time for the sake of her foreign interests and no one emerged as the winner of the balkan crisis was created much earlier is long been unfolding before our eyes and it has nothing to do with law or justice of the law this tribunal is going to provide a cover for its europe's lady justice is accused of turning a blind eye to striptease opinions and has been for some time i'm not at all surprised because when the law of conflict was added it the western media including
3:09 pm
the british media was far from object to. well understand why the serbian people demonstrate against the rest of the. because they live across them to the fact that the western media always behaved about name during the conflict and i've seen for myself a war crime in bosnia at a place called people odd which was completely ignored by the media over the legal photographic evidence of the massacre of. civilians in the town serbia's ministry of justice is called the ministry of truth shipping out on the beach after a trial will have to little to change what a lot of serbs believe that it stands for anything. r t l great story. well let's bring you this live event now you're seeing the pictures from the airport as the helicopter can tell you right now that she's off to
